Melissa is originally from New Jersey. She moved to Greenville to attend East Carolina University, where she graduated with a Bachelors degree in 2018. Melissa grew up playing a variety of sports and competed at a high level. The years of high impact sports and injuries left her with pain and feeling limited by her body. It wasn't until Club Pilates opened that Melissa found the perfect fitness regime. Pilates offered the challenge she missed as an athlete while alleviating the pain she had. For the first time, she found something sustainable she knew she could do for the rest of her life. This led her to become a Comprehensively Certified Instructor through Club Pilates. She is excited to help others feel healthy, strong and empowered in their bodies.
